, president barack obama and governor mitt romney have four ivy league degrees between them and 50 debates between them, though none together and none like this. the incumbent president and the challenger on stage tonight in denver. and to set the stage for that, our political team beginning with peter alexander who covers the romney campaign for nbc news. peter, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you. after all the hype and spin, this is where the debate will finally take place. let's give you a quick show around. they'll shake hands in the middle. the president will stand at the podium on the right, mitt romney at the podium on the left. this debate is separated into six 15-minute segments focusing heavily on the economy. touching down in denver this afternoon, president obama has prepared more for these debates than any sitting president in the modern era. while anticipation builds at the tightly controlled debate site mitt romney reviewed in private relaxing with his sons and fueling up on a peanut butter and honey sandwich. >> i believe that the 21st century can be bett
